Beacon Award Participant Profile: City of Arcata

Main Info

Although the City has reduced emissions by 30% within the Municipal sector through energy efficiency upgrades and the installation of grid-tied, rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at City Hall and the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center, overall energy use has not decreased within the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors, according to an update inventory of community-wide GHG emissions conducted in 2007. Despite this, the City continues to strive to reduce emissions and is developing additional GHG reduction targets to reflect the community’s efforts.
